Water Lily Project
The wastewater treatment for this project is tailored to fit within the climate and culture of Vietnam. Craft makers cause heavy pollution with their wastewater flowing directly into the rivers.
The Water Lily Project would allow craft makers to increase production. Testing kits with online and in real life, support materials are intended to guide villagers, teaching them to become aware of their surroundings and become more cautious of their actions.
Students from UC Berkeley and Purdue University will develop this project to reduce water pollution. The wetland is designed to provide a natural filter from the manufacturers. Local people don’t have the capacity and knowledge of the source of water and waste. The open platform will provide crowd-sourced input. The database will aid in sustaining the program beyond the grant.
